Been hunting deer for sometime, but wouldn't consider myself an extremely successful one (sad to say!) at least for big bucks.
Anyway, I have a small piece of land, just under 80 acres with alot of road frontage, I now how all but 7 of the 50 acres that was once tillable in one crp program or another.
The lastest was 120ft strip of grass around all the edges of woods. The grass has come in great, tall and thick (canadian wild rye, big blue, indian grass and couple patches of swtich that you can barley walk thru. the woods were this borders is also pretty, thick, though unfortuanately mostly crap timber (black locust, mulberry, etc) and lots of multifloral rose, honeysuckle, etc, can barley walk thru it either.
What I'm concerned about now, is that the deer traffic has seemed to slow since, still see some trails thru the grass, but much less concentrated. Same with the woods, my stand by trails don't seem to be getting much use now.
Such a thing as too much/too thick of cover? The 7 acres left is mostly alfalfa and put in some rye in september and the property is surrounded by corn and beans.
